Bruising with yellow and red color, hardness and soreness over the site shot with crystal methamphetamine injection. Help?

I am very embarresed about this and won t worry you with the details of why I did it. I shot up crystal methamphetamine into my arm in a vein I recently bruised a few days ago. I got the hit however now the bruised area is sort of red and yellowish colors. The sight of injection is not really warm nor hot. But it is very sore to touch and rather hard. Please help.

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. I am very sorry to hear that you chose to shoot up crystal methamphetamine and you now have thrombophlebitis which is inflammation of the vein into which you injected. I believe there was also some amount of blood oozing out of the blood vessel causing bruise like area which is red and yellow in color. It will heal in a few days, however you need to make sure that the area is not infected, and consult a local doctor about the same. Applying local antibiotics and analgesics may help but systemic ones are more effective. I wish you the best in recovery and hope you do not try these drugs again.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a lovely day!
